Delta Rae - (Set time: 9:45 PM)
Delta Rae
Six-piece band Delta Rae hails from Durham, NC with Liz Hopkins and Brittany Holljes fronting the robust group with sultry harmonies rounded out by Holljes’ brothers Eric (vocals, piano) and Ian (vocals, guitar) as well as Mike McKee (drums) and Grant Emerson (bass). The band chose their moniker from a mythical story the Holljes siblings’ mother wrote about a Southern girl of the same name who summons the Greek gods to earth.
Headlining over 100 shows each year and a regular on the festival circuit since forming in 2009, Delta Rae’s larger-than-life performances have earned coveted spots at Bonnaroo, Tortuga Music Festival, Austin City Limits, Firefly, Bumbershoot, Summerfest, Hangout Fest, Kaaboo, Basilica, VOODOO, and Lollapalooza. They have received national attention with features in NPR, Washington Post, and New York Times, in addition to late night television performances and inclusion in Forbes' 30 Under 30 list.
Now signed to Big Machine Label Group’s imprint The Valory Music Co., Delta Rae are on tour this summer in support of their new release, A Long And Happy Life.
A Silent Film - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
A Silent Film
Recorded in a rustic studio on a pecan farm just outside El Paso Texas, the new EP from A Silent Film, "New Year," expands on the cinematic alternative rock of 2012's "Sand & Snow" and 2010's "The City that Sleeps."

Lead single 'Tomorrow' marries the anthemic power of "Joshua Tree"-era U2 with driving synths, setting up a soaring chorus that is destined to become an unforgettable moment in their live set.

'Paralysed' explores the powerlessness and self-destructiveness of infatuation -- I'm paralysed / by the touch of your hand / before you walk away please show me how / to break out of this jail cell -- set to a tense, high-energy soundtrack that combines the formal experimentation of Muse with the emotional lyrical directness of Imagine Dragons.

The EP's bombast is balanced by the soaring, dramatic ballads 'Strong Enough' and 'Message in the Sand,' both of which deal with finding emotional strength and support through a loved one: whenever I fall/you lift me up/show me how to be strong enough.

The Oxford, U.K. band once again returned to the U.S. to record "New Year." The EP was self-produced, in collaboration with Matt Wilcox, and was mixed by "The City that Sleeps" producer Sam Williams (Supergrass).

"New Year" will see worldwide release on April 21st, 2015, followed by touring and the release of a full-length album later this year.
Chantal Claret - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Chantal Claret
Chantal Claret was previously the frontwoman for New York rock band Morningwood, but now she's gone solo and will be releasing her debut solo EP, The Pleasure Seeker, in May with a full-length to follow in June on The End Records. “Bite Your Tongue,” a track from the EP, is a soulful, bluesy pop number that should be a hit with fans of singers like Adele and Lily Allen.
